Range Description

This species is endemic to Viet Nam, where is is found in Lao Cai Province (Mt. Fan Si Pan). Restricted to the east flank of Fan Si Pan (Phan Si Pan) between circa 2,600-2,800 m in a forest composed of mature trees with few intermediate age classes and few seedlings. The lower forest band was destroyed by forest fire in late 1970s/early 1980s and there has been no subsequent regeneration.

Attempts to find it on high peaks further south in the Hoang Lien Son range have not yielded any other populations.
